Domestic Abuse


Palm Coast - Florida - US

May 5, 2010 - PRLog -- PALM COAST, Fla. – A founder of a local nonprofit agency focused on helping domestic abuse victims is turning to the written word to assist victims in telling their story in order to help others.

Elva Thompson, founder of Precious Hearts Foundation, has authored two new testimonial books on domestic abuse set for release soon. The first book is titled A Mother’s Cry and is a touching autobiography about a young woman who stayed in a 15 year marriage for the benefit of her three children. Without notice, she then finds herself thrust into filing for divorce after her husband walks out on her and their daughters.

“It’s a true story about transitions that happen during turbulent times after a failed marriage,” Thompson said. “This book explores the emotions of restarting and details the victories and defeats of single parenthood including dating and starting life over under new management.”

The second book titled Battered Secrets: Men of Domestic Violence explores an even more taboo subject explaining domestic abuse from the battered man’s perspective.

“Battered Secrets provides amazing true stories about men that have been the victims of domestic violence and abuse,” Thompson said. “Most people think women are the abuse victims in all cases. But men can also be the abused. I knew this book would definitely raise a couple eyebrows.”

Along with supporting the emotional and physical needs of abuse victims to restore a normal life, Precious Hearts Foundation is dedicated to promoting change by using education to tackle the core causes of domestic abuse. Battered Secrets is a controversial way to show that women are not the only victims when it comes to domestic abuse. Men can also face the pain of an abusive spouse.

“We really want people to use the books as a spiritual path to healing from an abusive relationship,” Thompson said. “We hope that abuse victims can find a part of their situation in the books and by reading and absorbing the material find out that they are not alone and can find some peace in their lives.”

Along with being an author writing about domestic abuse and running the Precious Hearts Foundation, Thompson is also the founder of Esquire Publications, a local book publisher focused on small authors. She also runs Georgia Editing Services to help local authors get their books ready for publishing.
